To all PureFUN! Customers:
The tragedy and evil of the event in Connecticut this past weekend haunts us all. We are rocked to our core when evil breaks out on our kids – the most vulnerable of us. We want you to know that all of us here at PureFUN! are not only keeping the victims and their loved ones in our prayers but you as well. We know you will be directly impacted by this as you interact
with, answer questions for and discuss this event with the children and parents you serve. We pray God will give you the wisdom you need during this difficult time.
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
~ Todd Harrison, President

Our multicultural dolls can be used to teach a child how any baby would like to be rocked, cuddled, bathed, fed, and changed, as well as how a baby needs love and comfort. Showing a small child how to love a doll reinforces the care their own parents feel for them. Dolls can be used to teach little boys that there is nothing wrong with wanting to love a baby, care for a baby, dress or feed it. In fact, boys who play with dolls have more opportunities to learn how to become a loving, caring, fathers in the future.

There are several subcategories that are included in gross motor skills. Locomotive skills involve coordinating the entire body while crawling, walking, running, and skipping. Stability skills help one balance their body while it's in motion turning, twisting, rolling, and bending. The EZ Stepper is a family favorite to practice stability. Manipulation skills are the use of hands and fingers to manipulate objects by throwing, dribbling, catching, and kicking. Joey Jump is an exciting game a child can play to learn hand-eye coordination with catching. By incorporating gross and fine early child motor skills into game and playtime, children will learn the skills they will use for a lifetime while having fun.

I love EVERYTHING Peanuts! But….. who doesn’t!
Back to school time reminds me of Peanuts. We are now offering a great variety of items that work perfectly in any classroom. Whether you are looking to create a specific bulletin board for your classroom, or if you just want cute stickers to put on papers that you are grading, purefunsupply.com has a great variety of items.
When creating a bulletin board remember the basics. Always start with an eye catching back ground color. It should match the items that you are going to be putting on top. For example if you want to make a bulletin board about setting goals, first check out this great goal banner (Peanuts of course!)
I would make my background color Yellow to make the few yellow pictures pop! Then i would make the banner the main focus of my board. Use large block letters to make a catchy phrase. Then find other bulletin board sets that will make your board pop.
Leave a space for students to write their goals and then you can post them to the board! Help your students learn how to track their goals and celebrate them when they achieve them!
Happy Back to School!

We always tell our schools to have the students try to GUESS the flavor they are drinking when they are serving our Stain Fighter Clear flavors. Here is a great blog from www.education.com with a fun activity to see if your eyes can fool your taste buds.
Author: Shelly Smith
Grade Level: 1st to 5th; Type: Psychology
This project examines whether people’s perceptions of taste are influenced by their sight.
Can the color of a food or drink affect a person’s perception of its taste? or Can our eyes fool our taste buds?
- Three containers of apple juice ( or feel free to try any of our clear flavors for a mixture)
- Red and green food coloring
- 60 small, clear plastic cups
- 20 test subjects •
- With the food coloring, dye one container of juice red and one container of juice green.
- Pour a couple of inches of juice into each cup so that you have 20 cups of red juice, 20 cups of green juice, and 20 cups of uncolored juice.
- Place one cup of each color of juice in front of a test subject.
- Ask your subject to taste the red juice and tell you what flavor it is.
- Ask your subject to taste the green juice and tell you what flavor it is.
- Ask your subject to taste the uncolored juice and tell you what flavor it is.
- Record their answers.
- Repeat steps 3 to 7 for all of your subjects.
- Analyze your results. Did the color of the juice affect your subjects’ perceptions of their flavors? Did people mis-identify the flavors in keeping with the colors. (For example: Did they think the red juice tasted like fruit punch or cherry?)
Terms/Concepts: Taste buds, Sense of Taste, Sense of Sight

Schools, daycare centers and churches can all benefit from having learning toys for the children they care for. A variety of puzzles, lacing cards and various arts and crafts help the child learn while having fun. They are all also good entertainment and keep children occupied while learning and developing necessary skills. When choosing games and toys for children, take the age and skill level into consideration and remember that children love colorful, cute of funny pictures. Learning games should be inviting and a fun activity that holds a child's attention to be an effective learning tool.

Church inspiration decorations can also teach other learning concepts, such as letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Meaning, this decorations can help enforce both values and mainstream learning concepts. This helps children with their overall education as well as learning the principle values taught in the Bible and by the church. Decoration can do a great deal to make a bright, inviting learning environment that makes children excited about the items on the board or on the walls. As they look at these things, they absorb information and retain it, as the bright pictures capture their attention each time they enter the room.

Being able to sight read common words is an important step in learning to read. It frees up time to focus on sounding out unfamiliar words and makes reading faster. As kids recognize more words and read faster, their confidence in their own reading abilities grows. Proficient readers sight-read almost all words, pausing only when something doesn’t make sense.
Teaching your kids to sight read some of the most common words around consequently a good idea. They would naturally pick up these words as they read more, but why not help them along. Purefun offers an excellent selection of sight words learning materials for preschools, schools, and parents.
Flash cards are among the best tools for sight reading. Hold up the card and ask your kid to read the word. Let him or her sound it out if s/he doesn’t recognize it yet, but remember the goal is to recognize the word and not have to sound it out. Start with just a few cards. Once your child has these down, add one or two more to the mix. Keep the words your child already knows so that s/he doesn’t forget them and gets a boost of confidence from reading some words correctly.
